Meena Harper has a special gift, but it's only now that anyone's ever appreciated it. The Palatine Guard — a powerful secret demon-hunting unit of the Vatican — has hired her to work at their new branch in Lower Manhattan. With Meena's ability to predict how everyone she meets will die, the Palatine finally has a chance against the undead.

My thoughts:
Overbite by Meg Cabot is the sequel to Insatiable that came out in 2010. Meena has left behind her old life to work for the Palatine. She's still desperately missing Lucian but she feels satisfied that she's helping save lives. When an old boyfriend comes calling Meena realizes that something is not quite right with him. Something or someone is after her. With the help of Lucian and Alaric, Meena tries to uncover who is behind it all.
Overbite is a good sequel. It picks up where the last book ended. Meg Cabot brought back all the characters that I love from Insatiable. The story line is full of mystery and intrigue. There are a lot of revelations that happen in this book that are jaw dropping. I love that Meg Cabot kept the humor from the last book while managing to amp up the drama. Although the story is well written and very good I was a little disappointed in the ending. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who has not read this book yet, but I will say I wish things turned out differently.
This is a book that I would recommend. It's has the right amount of humor mixed with supernatural elements. I think if you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you'll like this series. This is a great escape book to read while on vacation.
My rating:

  1. I love Meg Cabot's books because of their sly humor, their underdog heroines, and their zany take on paranormal anything. I came to Meg's writing via her teen novels when I was working as a teen librarian.
